Mary Trump Bio – Wiki
Mary Trump is the niece of President Donald Trump. According to The Daily Beast, Mary Trump is writing a tell-all book about the president and their family that is set to be released on August 11 and will feature “harrowing and salacious stories” about her uncle. The book will also reveal she was a major source behind The New York Times’ 2018 report on the Trump family’s taxes, the news site reports.
The book is titled, “Too Much And Never Enough,” according to The Daily Beast’s Lachlan Cartwright. Mary Trump is a psychologist and life coach who lives in New York. She has not spoken out in the media about her uncle’s presidency or a presidential campaign but has been involved in a feud with him dating back to 2000 when she and her brother contested Trump’s parents’ will, The Daily Beast reports.
She is 55 years old.
Mary Lea Trump is one of two children born to Donald Trump’s brother, Fred Trump Jr., and Fred Trump Jr.’s wife, Linda Lee Clapp Trump. She is the eldest grandchild of Fred Trump Sr. and Mary Ann MacLeod Trump. Donald Trump is one of her two uncles, along with Robert Trump. She also has two aunts, retired federal judge Maryanne Trump Barry and Elizabeth Trump Grau.
Mary Trump’s father, Fred Trump Jr., died in 1981 at the age of 43 after battling alcoholism. In 2019, Trump talked to The Washington Post about his eldest brother and second oldest sibling, saying he regretted pressuring him about his career. According to The Post, Mary Trump’s father dreamed of being a pilot, but Donald Trump put pressure on him to join the family business, saying he shouldn’t be a “chauffeur in the sky.”
Mary Trump is a certified professional life coach, according to her Linkedin profile. She graduated from Tufts University with a bachelor’s degree in English Literature. She then completed her master’s degree in English Literature at Columbia University. Mary also has a master’s degree in clinical psychology from Adelphi University and earned her Ph.D. in clinical psychology at Adelphi.
Business & Career
Public records show Mary Trump has owned and operated several businesses in New York and New England, including a marina, an import company, and has been involved in real estate. She is currently the chief executive officer of The Trump Coaching Group, a New York-based life coaching company she started in 2012, according to her Linkedin profile.

A more in-depth website appears to have been replaced by a barebones version at some point. It is not clear how active Mary Trump’s company is. An older version of the website said:

An inactive Facebook page shows that the group would offer help with fitness, mindfulness, and nutrition. The company’s motto was, “Set your life in motion…”
Mary Trump Book
According to The Daily Beast, Mary Trump’s book is set to be released weeks before Donald Trump will accept the GOP nomination for president at the Republican National Convention in Florida. She did not return a request for comment from Heavy and it is not clear if she plans to speak out ahead of the book being published on August 11.
Mary Trump has remained out of the spotlight and has not talked on TV or to the media about her uncle, both during his presidential campaign and after he was elected to the White House in 2016. But she has maintained a public Twitter account where she has shared some thoughts about Donald Trump and politics. She appears to be an avid Democrat, who voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016.
On November 9, 2016, after her uncle elected as president, Mary Trump tweeted several times to prominent media personalities and liberals, saying it was, “One of the worst nights of my life.” She also tweeted, “Utterly horrifying. What has happened to our country?” In another tweet that same night she wrote, “James Comey should be in jail.”
About Donald Trump winning the election, his niece said on Twitter, “What a tragedy. I feel like that lost my country tonight.” She added, “Hillary Clinton is an extraordinary human being and public servant. That she lost to this is unspeakable.” In a tweet to Joy Reid of MSNBC, she called into question the legitimacy of her uncle’s victory, writing, “FBI, Comey, Wikileaks, Russia, obsession with emails, normalization of racism, sexual assault. Fair and square? No.”
